My all-time favorite, since I first heard it, has been

Get Yer Ya Ya's Out by the Stones.

After that,

Live at Leeds by the Who
Waiting for Columbus by Little Feat
Goodbye by Cream

Let's do this yet again....

Sinatra Live at the Sands
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W146Z_-O0J0

No one thought to mention perhaps the seminal live album of all time? The Chairman bows down to the Godfather in the Temple. JB AT THE APOLLO:

Bootsy took something from that:

Zimmerman bows down to him (he always did respect his elders; roshi still lives!):

It's coming through a hole in the air,
from those nights in Tiananmen Square.
It's coming from the feel
that this ain't exactly real,
or it's real, but it ain't exactly there.
From the wars against disorder,
from the sirens night and day,
from the fires of the homeless,
from the ashes of the gay:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.
It's coming through a crack in the wall;
on a visionary flood of alcohol;
from the staggering account
of the Sermon on the Mount
which I don't pretend to understand at all. [Hallejuah!}
It's coming from the silence
on the dock of the bay,
from the brave, the bold, the battered
heart of Chevrolet:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

It's coming from the sorrow in the street,
the holy places where the races meet;
from the homicidal bitchin'
that goes down in every kitchen
to determine who will serve and who will eat.
From the wells of disappointment
where the women kneel to pray
for the grace of God in the desert here
and the desert far away:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

Sail on, sail on
O mighty Ship of State!
To the Shores of Need
Past the Reefs of Greed
Through the Squalls of Hate
Sail on, sail on, sail on, sail on.

It's coming to America first,
the cradle of the best and of the worst.
It's here they got the range
and the machinery for change
and it's here they got the spiritual thirst.
It's here the family's broken
and it's here the lonely say
that the heart has got to open
in a fundamental way:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

It's coming from the women and the men.
O baby, we'll be making love again.
We'll be going down so deep
the river's going to weep,
and the mountain's going to shout Amen!
It's coming like the tidal flood
beneath the lunar sway,
imperial, mysterious,
in amorous array:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

Sail on, sail on ...

I'm sentimental, if you know what I mean
I love the country but I can't stand the scene.
And I'm neither left or right
I'm just staying home tonight,
getting lost in that hopeless little screen.
But I'm stubborn as those garbage bags
that Time cannot decay,
I'm junk but I'm still holding up
this little wild bouquet:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

Vesele vanoce a stastny novk rok!

One more for good measure:

Definately "Waiting for Columbus"!!!!

And nobody's mentioned "Stop Making Sense", Talking Heads. Oops, apologies to RBNW, I missed that on your list!

Also, I'm partial to John Hiatt's "Live At Budokan".

The first Hot Tuna album.

Thanks to our friend bluedevil,I saw the original Neon Park artwork for the 'waiting for columbus' album cover the other night. And yes,one of the best.


Ummagumma(Floyd) and under a blood red sky(u2) are the two that come to mind.
